Norwegian four-piece SLØTFACE’s highly anticipated new EP ‘Empire Records’ is out now via Propeller Recordings. Released amidst a wave of glowing reviews and acclaim, the EP arrives alongside the news of a new 2017 UK tour, and festival announcements including Eurosonic, SXSW, and The Great Escape.

The new EP is an intriguing melting pot of influences and ideas, with tracks ranging from the 90’s indie rock tendencies of ‘Bright Lights’ – to the EP’s title track which stands as nostalgic, excitable ode to record shops of a bygone era.
SLØTFACE revel in their ability to write music which has a clear, impassioned message – but never shoving their thoughts down the listeners throat. Instead – their music is eloquently coated with a sheen of pop sensibilities, delivered with the snarl of a punk band.
Speaking on the EP recording process, singer Haley Shea said: “We recorded it at Ocean Sounds in Norway – the most beautiful studio in the world – with our awesome producer, Dan Austin, late last year” – with her going on to say: “The environment and stormy weather when we were recording really helped set the mood.”
The new EP ties up a sensational year for SLØTFACE – ahead of their debut US tour in December. Following their acclaimed four-track debut ‘Sponge State’ released in the Spring, the band have clocked up more than 4000 plays across international radio, including weekly spins from Annie Mac, Huw Stephens and Phil Taggart on BBC Radio 1 and a playlist add at triple j in Australia. Away from radio, the band is celebrated by the likes of Billboard, NME, Noisey, DIY, Rocksound, Kerrang! and Consequence of Sound, alongside many others.
‘Empire Records’ will be toured on both sides of the Atlantic, with SLØTFACE embarking a string of UK dates in Feb 2017, preceded by their first ever US Tour in December 2016. The band are also announcing 2017 festival appearances, including Eurosonic, SXSW, and The Great Escape – full list of dates below…
